MESSERSTAHL® Cutting Edge Technology
All Messerstahl® knives are forged from high carbon stainless steel for superior strength and lifetime durability…Not stamped out of thin sheets of steel like most knives.
Top of the line quality! The forging process creates the strongest and sharpest blades possible! The heating process rearranges the molecules during creation of the blade, making the blade less flexible. As a result, these knives keep an edge longer. All of Messerstahl® Cutlery is forged, thus having a bolster and a tang. The tang adds weight to the handle of the knife, creating impeccable blade balance! The bolster creates support in the center between the blade and the handle. Not to mention the bolster gives protection for the chef’s fingers! Forged cutlery can be sharpened easily!

Full Tang Construction
Messerstahl® blades extend the full length of the handle, a hallmark of quality construction that provides comfort in use through precise balance. Messerstahl® handles are molded to the blade resulting in a seamless and hygienic fit & finish! This design is executed by forging and grinding the tang narrow behind the guard/bolster area. This is done so that our patented Textra-Grip™ handles be slid over the tang completely to sit flush against the guard/bolster giving the knife a contemporary look while not compromising quality.
